Difficult Conversations Just for Women immediately became a best seller and Amazon's number one hot release in three categories: Women in Business, Conflict Resolution, and Business Etiquette. Readers' Favorite has high praise for Difficult Conversations Just for Women, awarding it with their five-star seal of excellence. Here's an excerpt from their review: "Ground-breaking. Lively and highly entertaining. No fluff, no babbling, just what readers need to know. It is an excellent tool to help anyone understand the factors that affect effective communication, especially when women have to face men in both business and life, and how to handle emotions in difficult circumstances. The message couldn't be timelier!"
